Podcast Episode #10: Catching Up With the Kids

July 17, 2014 Podcast 0



Welcome to the 10th episode of the Tea in the Treetops podcast hosted by Philippa and Angelya.

This episode is a bit of a catch-up episode as we have missed a week – we didn’t get to a discussion topic but we did talk about the books we have been reading to our three-year-olds. We also chat about the books we have been and are reading.

Listen to the end for Angelya’s little sprout singing about frogs!

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear your feedback – anything you would like us to talk about in particular? Just let us know!

You can listen to past episodes of the podcast, as well as the various ways to subscribe on the main podcast page.

Our title music is titled Sea of Dreams and has been used with the kind permission of the composer, Bart Stoop. You can hear more of Bart’s beautiful music at facebook.com/BartStoop.
